Without surprise, G2 Esports and ENCE have listed benched players Kenny ‘⁠kennyS⁠’ Schrub and Aleksi ‘⁠allu⁠’ Jalli as substitutes for the event. But there are also cases of players subbing for teams they are not tied to: Egor ‘⁠flamie⁠’ Vasilyev, who recently left NAVI, will be Entropiq’s backup player, while DBL Poney player Alexandre ‘⁠bodyy⁠’ Pianaro is part of Vitality’s roster.

Dexerto revealed on October 21 that players who test positive for Covid-19 may be disqualified from the event. PGL explained that every team had to submit a substitute player who can replace a player in case of a positive test, citing the need to protect the “integrity of the Major”.
